Berg Publishers' journal collections available via NESLI2

Oxford, UK, 11th February 2008

Berg Publishers <http://www.bergpublishers.com/> and JISC 
Collections <http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/> are pleased to 
announce that they have successfully entered into an agreement to 
provide Berg journals to the UK Academic community under the new 
NESLi2 SMP <http://www.nesli2.ac.uk/nesli2smp.htm> offering.

As one of the first publishers to sign up to the NESLi2 SMP deal, 
Berg has provided a number of offers to UK institutions which 
will suit the wide variety of needs in the academic communities 
it serves.  Berg's list of visual and material culture journals 
are truly interdisciplinary and offer the very best of research 
across cultural and media studies, sociology, anthropology, 
history and human geography.

Kathryn Earle, Managing Director of Berg, said: "We are delighted 
that JISC Collections have provided smaller publishers such as 
Berg with the opportunity to join the NESLi2 licensing scheme. 
By joining this initiative we are able to offer UK institutions 
the opportunity to access exciting research in new and important 
areas of the social sciences and humanities. Berg is committed to 
innovation in journal publishing and we look forward to welcoming 
new subscribers to these important journals."

Berg's collection is available in entirety and in a smaller 
flexible package to suit different institutional needs.
